Steps into handicap company after just two runs, having shown a lot of promise on both his races to date, both of which have worked out really well. A good 2nd to Bear Ghylls on debut, who then won a handicap easily off a mark of 130. Gowel Road ran a fine 4th here at Newbury last time, in what could prove to be a pretty hot contest. The 5th that day had already shown good from when 2nd to Adrimel (a Grade 2 winner last weekend) with the first 3 all hailing from big powerful yards. Gowel Road looked more professional last time compared to his debut, and if stepping forward again for his 3rd start, he’s sure to be competitive off a mark of 122.
